Bottle dated 4-8-18. CBF tulip pint.

A: pours an ever so slightly hazy copper orange with one thick finger of fluffy beige head. Rows and rows of streaming, small bubble carb. Outrageously awesome lacing. Really, it is hard to make a beer look better than this one looks.

S: fresh out of the fridge I’m getting loads of citrus and sweetness; a very classic APA smell. Cascade? Centennial?

T: very traditional American IPA taste, well executed. Citrus, grapefruit peel and white bread arrival. Mildly sweet, not nearly as sweet as Lazer Snake, but a very similar taste profile. Like a lower alcohol two hearted ale.

M: midweight, low carbonation, fluffy texture. Slightly slick, clean finish.

O: made for mass appeal, this is a success. Breaks no new ground stylistically, but it is truly perfectly executed. I’d really classify this as an IPA though, just one with lower ABV. I liked Lazer Snake better, I’m a sucker for sweet beers. But if I’m having more than one, I’d go for this.

To me it seems very close to zombie dust in terms of taste and flavor. Love the name and cover art. A very hoppy yet smooth pale ale that I would probably get again. Recommended!

Love the uniquely orange color that i did not expect, medium head with nice lacing on the glass, hoppy, but well-balanced with the citrus, hints of pine and malt in there too, smooth on the way down and magnificent all the way through, a real winner.

L - frothy 2-finger head atop a translucent orange body.

S - sweet malt, grass, pine, citrus.

T - quite grassy. Citrus helps to balance the earthy hops. Mildly bitter, mildly sweet, no booze.

F - medium body and carb.

O - An enjoyable Pale.

A: Excellent light yellow/orange color, little haze, finger of head that quickly dissipated after a minute.

S: Floral, citrus, bready, the usual suspects. Nothing too special, or at least I can't taste the specialness

T: Follows the nose, pleasing.

M: Light/medium body. Perfect carb.

O: It was nice, but nothing outstanding. Drink it again but I won't seek it out.
